Friday night was just the start of a fantastic weekend. Saturday was the first of a series of talks that are a part of the Tatua Kenya Campaign we are running. The campaign is working to expose the power of "ground-up" solutions here in Kenya. I could do a whole blog on that itself, but I wont. I will just encourage you to look at the Be The Change- Kenya blog for more information. We filled our space to capacity for the event and two of the attendees were my good friends Mike and Leslie. Mike and Leslie are missionaries with the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA) and I met them while I was in Toronto for orientation. They arrived exactly 2 weeks after me and I anxiously anticipated their coming. After the event they brought me back to their apartment and we spent time catching up over Tuskers. Then we headed to dinner and I stayed with them that night. The next morning I went to their church where Mike is now the pastor. The English service was fabulous and so was the Swahili service, but the sermon was a bit long for me since I did not know what was being said, but people were laughing so I am guessing it was funny. After church they brought me home and I showed them Rongai. It was really great to reunite with them and I am looking forward to spending more time with them over my year here.
